Hello,

You can use Group Policy to restrict users to a set of snap-ins and administrative tools. If you can't run GPE or other administrative tools and you receive the following message:

referenced in this document, has been restricted by policy. Contact your administrator for details,

You need to change your domain's configuration settings.

Start the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in. Right-click the domain and select Properties.

Select the Group Policies tab >> Select the default domain policy and click Edit >> Navigate to User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Microsoft Management Console.

Double-click Restrict Users to the explicitly permitted list of snap-ins >> Select Not configured >> You can drill down further into Restricted/Permitted snap-ins\Group Policy and set Group Policy snap-in to enabled and Administrative Templates (User) to enabled or not configured.


Now, you can edit the registry to make these changes. Start >> run >> Regedit >> Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\MMC. Double-click RestrictToPermittedSnapins and set the value to 0 and click OK. Close the registry editor.

If you still canít start the Group Policy snap-in, perform the following additional actions.
Start >> run >> Regedit >> Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\MMC. Change the Restrict_Run value to 0 in the following keys if they exist:

{8FC0B734-A0E1-11D1-A7D3-0000F87571E3} (this is the restriction for Group Policy snap-in)
{0F6B957E-509E-11D1-A7CC-0000F87571E3} (this is the restriction for the Administrative Templates)

Close the registry editor.

Hi Doc

Please note that my PC is not a part of the network, Its stand alone. Can I still go ahead with the solution as advised
or is there a another way to do it for stand alone PC?. I am using XP Home SP3. I am the only person using this computer
so I have never created a password for the windows. I have just setup the password on the motherboard, which is
required for booting.

Please advise if i should still go ahead with your instructions?? :hmm:

Hi Doc

Sorry for the delay in my reply.... my questions are:

1) How to start MMC?
2) I navigated to the regisrty key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft... but could not find "MMC" there

So what next can be done!!

On the Start Menu, click Run, type MMC, and then click OK
